    As to FNMA we were disappointed that you didn't discuss Fannie Mae's upcoming payment to the government, their "dividend".

    Will this tank FNMA share prices or should we hold? Isn't that the big question here?

    As to the "mad" Cramer? His strange methods of being half bully half coach make us extremely nervous. He's just not in it for "the people" and in this case, us Fools.
